E&O to launch Quayside Seafront condominium in Penang in 1Q2010
By Rosalynn Poh of theedgeproperty.com
Friday, 15 January 2010 19:06

KUALA LUMPUR; Eastern & Oriental Bhd (E&O) is set to launch the first block of its Quayside Seafront Resorts Condominium within its Seri Tanjung Pinang development in Penang in 1Q2010. The project, with a gross development value of RM1.8 billion, comprises seven blocks next to Straits Quay, an international marina and retail landmark on the island.

The first block, comprising 298 units, is expected to be ready in January 2013. According to the developer, the water-themed tropical resort will be the first-of-its kind in the region. It features a 4.5-acre signature water park and clubhouse at the centre core of the 20.8-acre freehold tract. It also includes a 6.9-acre tropical garden, as well as one tennis court and one multi-purpose court, among other features. Five of the blocks are high-rise, while two are low-rise. The whole development has a total of 1,208 units.
Units are available in several designs, with built-ups from 1,150 sq ft to 2,680 sq ft and penthouses sized at 7,159 sq ft. Prices are from RM765,000.

E&O launched St Mary Residences in Kuala Lumpur last year, and among its significant completed projects include Dua Residency, Seventy Damansara and Idamansara in Kuala Lumpur. The developer also owns Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Farquhar Street and the Lone Pine Hotel in Batu Feringghi in Penang.

E&O piles on the luxury for Quayside condo project
By Marina Emmanuel
Published: 2010/01/19

The luxury condominium project in Penang will boast the region's first private waterpark within a gated community.

AN INTERNATIONAL marina, premium water-taxi service, upscale food and retail outlets and commanding views of the Andaman Sea are among the attractions property developer E&O Property Development Bhd will offer potential buyers at its RM1.8 billion Quayside Seafront Resort Condominum development in Penang next month.

The company's general manager (sales and marketing) Lim Hooi Yen yesterday said the luxury condominium project - which is part of E&O's Seri Tanjung Pinang waterfront development - will also boast the region's first private waterpark within a gated community.

"Apart from marketing the project to well-travelled and well-heeled locals, we will also promote the units in markets like Singapore, Hong Kong, Medan, Jakarta, Surabaya, China, Australia, Japan and Korea," she told a media briefing at the project site in Penang.

The Quayside condominiums, which comprise seven blocks of seafront units, will be sprawled on a 8.4ha site, with 1.8ha of land dedicated to a signature waterpark and clubhouse.
Lim said the proposed project is expected to be completed in about seven to 10 years and about 60 per cent of the total 1,200 Quayside condominium units are expected to be sold to Malaysians.

On the Straits Quay retail marina, which is adjoining the Quayside Condominiums, Lim said the 4.96ha retail enclave will offer everything from boutiques to bistros, seaside cafes, bars and boat rides.

"Just like in Venice, Italy, we hope to introduce the E&O limo which will be a water limousine service," she added, saying that the com-pany has already identified a watercraft that is needed for the water-taxi service.

"We also plan to engage the fishermen in the area to work with us, by having local fishing boats bringing in the island's fresh catch of the day twice daily to a fishermen's pontoon which we plan to build."

Straits Quay and the marina are expected to open by the end of this year, she added.

Quayside Seafront Resort Condominium to be launched next month
By Regina William of The Edge Financial Daily
Monday, 18 January 2010 18:25



GEORGE TOWN: E & O Property Development Bhd's Quayside Seafront Resort Condominium (pictured) project is on course to be launched next month. The 1,200-unit project with a gross development value of RM1.8 billion is located within the Seri Tanjung Pinang development and touted to be on par with the world’s elite waterfront communities like Australia's Sovereign Islands and Sentosa Cove in Singapore.

Quayside will be located on 21 acres of prime seafront land and is said to be the first in the region to create a sprawling 4.5-acre waterfront park exclusively for residents. The development consists of seven blocks of condominiums, five of which are high-rise with 26 storeys and 298 units per block, while two are low-rise with 7-storey blocks of 51 units each.

During a media familiarisation trip of the Quayside project, E & O Property Development’s general manager for sales and marketing Lim Hooi Yen said the project was expected to attract significant foreign interest. Up to 40% of the purchasers would most probably be foreign, Lim said.

Up to 60% of the units are seafacing, offering a 270 degree view of the Andaman Sea, Gurney Drive and the Batu Ferringhi beaches, while the rest will have hill and garden views.

Buyers can choose from seven design types and sizes, and prices range from RM765,000 for a 1-bedroom unit sized at 1,137 sq ft to the RM4.3 million penthouse unit with an area of 7,159 sq ft and its own private swimming pool.

Units come complete with kitchen cabinets, electrical fittings and air-conditioning. Unlike other condominium units, these offer two entrance points into each unit.

There is also an additional 6.9 acres of tropical gardens and green lung within the development for those who are keen on the clean and green living concept. For security, the gated community is equipped with CCTVs

The first 26-storey block to be launched next month would be completed in 2013 while the entire project is expected to be completed in seven to 10 years.

Lim said the selling point of Quayside Seafront Resort Condominium, besides the signature waterpark and clubhouse, is its proximity to Straits Quay -- a 12.4-acre retail enclave with serviced suites and a marina to boot.
Straits Quay, which would be open to the public, is scheduled to be ready by year-end and boasts of amenities like 1,087 parking bays, marina with 78 berths, wheelchair accessibility, alfresco dining, boutiques, bistros, restaurants, art galleries, antique shops and also facilities for year-round performances and concerts.

Other attractions planned are boat rides for the public, water limousines for guests staying at the E & O Hotel and fishermen landing their catch on the shores of Straits Quay.

The retail outlets would be leased and managed by E & O Property Development to ensure the desired clientele are maintained.

As with other properties developed by E & O at Seri Tanjung Pinang, Lim expects the Quayside units to be snapped up as they are launched.

"In 2007, when we launched the Straits Quay serviced suites, they were sold within two weeks, while the 33 units of seafront terraces launched last June starting from RM1 million were taken up within three hours.

"This confirms that Seri Tanjung Pinang is a desirable address for residence among foreigners and also locals alike.

"Within our development, including the earlier phases of terraced houses and the serviced suites, we have buyers from over 12 countries," she said, adding that the Quayside project was also targetting buyers from Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, the UK, Australia, Japan and South Korea.

Promotions have also been held at boatshows overseas to attract the boating community due to the condominium project's proximity to the marina.

E&O anticipates good sales for Quayside condominiums
By Regina William of The Edge Financial Daily
Friday, 05 February 2010 21:53
GEORGE TOWN: E&O Bhd anticipates sales of between 40% and 50% of its Quayside seafront luxury condominiums in the next one to two months.
E&O managing director Datuk Terry Tham said at least 110 units or 30% of the 298 units of the first block have already been booked by prospective buyers since the soft launch of the project. Its official launch is on Sunday Feb 7.


The 1,200-unit project with a gross development value of RM1.8 billion is located within the Seri Tanjung Pinang development in Penang which is touted to be on par with the world’s elite waterfront communities like Australia's Sovereign Islands and Sentosa Cove in Singapore.
Quayside will be located on 21 acres of prime seafront land and is said to be the first development in the region to create a RM20 million 4.5-acre waterfront park exclusively for residents.
The development consists of seven blocks of condominiums, five of which are 26 storeys high with 298 units per block, while two are low-rise seven-storey blocks of 51 units each.
On Phase 2 of Seri Tanjung Pinang, Tham said a masterplan, including the environmental aspects for the reclamation works, was ongoing.
"We have a timeline until 2017 when the concession for reclaiming 740 acres ends and we will work towards that goal," Tham said during a media briefing with Quayside consultants Cynthia Jacobs, the vice-president and managing director of WATG Seattle, the Quayside concept master planner; Jerry Coburn of GCH Seattle who are the landscape architects; and security expert Richard Dimmick the managing director of GDSS Malaysia.
Also present was E&O's executive director Eric Chan Kok Leong.
Chan said the Seri Tanjung Pinang project would be the new Millionaires Row in Penang, withthe prices of properties launched in the earlier phases now being valued above RM1 million.

"It will be the upscale enclave of Penang, the likes of Damansara in the Klang Valley, as it is lifestyle living in the city with its own marina and other amenities," Chan added.
Meanwhile, Tham said E&O has scaled down the height of the annexe of the E&O Hotel from the original approved plan of 28 storeys to 15 storeys and that it would be completed by 2012.
Tham said the RM150 million project was initially scaled down to 17 storeys after it was said to contravene Unesco heritage guidelines for George Town, and now has reduced it further.
The annexe will have 139 suites, bringing the total number of suites to 240, with more restaurants, retail outlets, a podium and larger swimming pool with extensive meetings and banqueting facilities.
On the RM50 million upgrading works of E&O's Lone Pine Hotel in Batu Ferringhi, Tham said it would be completed by end-2010.

The hotel was closed down in April last year to facilitate the upgrading exercise, which will see the number of rooms increased from 50 to 90.

Quayside’s first block 50% sold after weekend launch
By Regina William of The Edge Financial Daily
Tuesday, 09 February 2010 16:34

GEORGE TOWN: E & O Bhd's RM1.8 billion Quayside seafront luxury condominiums officially launched on Feb 7 (Sunday) has reached 50% in sales for its first block of 298 units.

Initially, E & O hoped to achieve 50% sales within two months after the official launch for the units priced between RM765,000 for a 1-bedroom unit to RM4.3 million for a penthouse.

Before the official launch, since the soft launch a month ago, 30% of the units had been secured with payments made by prospective buyers.

E & O executive director Eric Chan told theedgeproperty.com the launch on Sunday was successful as sales bookings were secured with deposits by buyers.

"We are well within our target and we expect interest and sales momentum to be stronger over the next two weeks, straddling the Chinese New Year holidays," he added.
The 1,200-unit project with a gross development value of RM1.8 billion is located within Seri Tanjung Pinang and touted to be on par with the world’s elite waterfront communities like Australia's Sovereign Islands and Sentosa Cove in Singapore.

Quayside will be located on 21 acres of prime seafront land and is said to be the first in the region to create a sprawling RM20 million 4.5-acre waterfront park exclusively for residents.

The development consists of seven blocks of condominiums, five of which are high-rise with 26 storeys and 298 units per block, while two are low-rise with 7-storey blocks of 51 units each.

The location of the project is a major attraction as the units will have a 270-degree view of the Andaman Sea, Gurney Drive and the Batu Ferringhi beaches.

The gated community is equipped with CCTV security and come with an additional 6.9 acres of tropical gardens and green lung featuring resort style living. Buyers can choose from seven design types and sizes with prices ranging from RM765,000 for a 1-bedroom unit with a built-up area of 1,137 sq ft to the RM4.3 million penthouse unit with a built-up area of 7,159 sq ft with its own private swimming pool.

Units come complete with kitchen cabinets, electrical fittings and air-conditioning. Unlike other condominium units, these offer two entrance points. The first block will be completed by 2013, while the entire Quayside project is expected to be completed within seven to 10 years.

All this mess is due to the land Reclamation by Seri Tanjung Pinang. Thanx for ruined Gurney Drive.
They should plant the whole patch there with mangrove trees, at least got a bit greenery.
